Hey I am in the middle of a timing belt job on a 3.7L Commander.

I have removed both valve covers and timing cover. The cams are showing “V6” at 12 o’clock and the crankshaft is aligned at TDC.

BUT…. When turning the crank by hand, the chain kept slipping on the drivers side cam. So although everything looks aligned… I rotated the crank multiple times without the drivers side cam sprocket moving in sync… (I have attached a video trying to explain what happened)

AM I SAFE TO CHANGE TIMING CHAIN SINCE EVERYTHING IS ALIGNED??

or will the fact that the drivers side cam wasn’t moving at first cause irreparable damage??

PLEASE Help before I proceed with removing the old chain.
Thank you Alll.
